Working with African coders: AppAfrica

AppAfrica is an incubating space for African tech entrepreneurs.

Their primary objective is to provide "a physical space with a solid Internet connection, servers, software and computers that allows students and recent graduates a place to develop their ideas in a constructive environment with industry professionals as mentors outside of school".

By offering a platform from which techies can exchange information and collaborate on software projects, AppAfrica seeks to bring local entrepreneurial talent to the global marketplace for computer software development: "Entrepreneur projects are refined and prepped to help them secure funding and launch sustainable, profitable businesses."
